Strato shapes usually low-belly high, just enough for the elbow to have proper leverage.

Pointy guitars are much easier to sling lower for me. The wings on Ironbirds, RR's, V's, and warriors make it way easier to tremolo pick just using the wrist. I sport my Ironbird waist height, sometimes higher if I'm gonna be playing extensively.

I wear my guitar high. Pickups about 1 and 1/2 inch above the belly button. I find this much more comfortable. Anything higher than 12th fret is far more playable. I really don't care what I look like. I'm more worried about the sound coming from my stack.

With the upper horn (all guitars of mine are superstrats) just below the left nipple, perfect access to upper and lower frets

if it's too high i get a pain on the outside of my shoulder and if it's too low, my forearm is too short for me to alternate pick.
